What are Global Issues?
Global Issue stands for complex contemporary issues, which are related to the entire globe. These issues are intertwined with various stakeholders and phenomena, and therefore, it is not easy to solve them by using a traditional approach. Global Issues can be seen in our daily lives, and we must try to find a solution from our daily lives. For example, even a piece of bread that you have had for breakfast could highlight issues like the significant cost of energy used to import wheat, the wage and human rights issues of people engaged in production and transportation, mass disposal, and biased food distribution in the world.
